CVS Quits Tobacco Sales Effective Today #OneGoodReason
You may have heard about CVS pharmacy stores stopping the sales of cigarettes and other tobacco products at all CVS/pharmacy stores scheduled to begin the first of October this year.
Well, I just received a heads-up from CVS that effective today, they have officially ended tobacco sales in all CVS/pharmacy locations, one month earlier than expected! As part of this commitment to health, CVS has launched a smoking cessation program to help people quit smoking and kicked off their One Good Reason movement today at Bryant Park in New York City. The heart of this campaign is to join together as a greater community with the greater goal of saying farewell to tobacco. We all have our reasons for living tobacco free and encouraging others to do so – whether it’s a personal experience or someone we care about who’s been affected by the harmful effects of tobacco usage. There are so many people out there who are trying their best to quit, but find themselves falling off the wagon more than once. 
If you or know someone you know needs help kicking the bad habit of smoking, join or tell that someone about this movement. Share your own One Good Reason by posting a few words, a photo and/or a video using #OneGoodReason to your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts today to tell the world what your One Good Reason is for standing with CVS.
To help yourself or your family or friend quit smoking, you can find resources and services available at CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations nationwide or go online for helpful tips on how to manage and quit smoking, success stories and more.
Additionally, CVS Caremark has changed their name to “CVS Health” to better reflect the overall company’s purpose of helping customers on their path to better health. They further added that the CVS/pharmacy name of their retail stores will remain the same.
